Compare the Cost: The 2014 Chrysler Town and Country MSRP
When you shop for a vehicle like the 2014 Chrysler Town & Country, there’s a good chance you’re looking for it to serve your family, which means that price and the family budget are likely at the forefront of your mind.
While many drivers go to the Chrysler minivan for its legacy, we think that you’re better off with the 2015 Honda Odyssey. To start with, the 2015 Honda Odyssey LX is priced to own at just $28,975 (MSRP)* compared to the 2014 Chrysler’s $30,765.
But we hear you wondering whether the Town & Country doesn’t make up that price difference with features. It doesn’t. Let’s take a look at the features of both of these minivans and you’ll see where the true value lies.
Honda Comes Out Ahead by a Wide Margin
Honda has made it a point to redefine the idea of “standard features” for the last few years, and just one look at the Odyssey’s entry-level trim should make it clear that they’ve succeeded. The 2015 Odyssey LX comes standard with:
- Bluetooth phone and audio
- Touchscreen infotainment system (Honda’s exclusive i-MID)
- Steering wheel-mounted controls
- Built-in backup camera
- Pandora radio and SMS texting capabilities
Don’t get us wrong, the Town & Country can be equipped with many comparable features, but you’d have to upgrade the Chrysler past its basic trim to get its features on par with the standard amenities of the already more affordable Odyssey.
As if features weren’t enough, the Odyssey is more fuel efficient as well. Honda’s 2015 Odyssey LX with automatic transmission earns an EPA-estimated 28 mpg on the highway from its 3.5L 248-hp V6 engine.** The Town & Country, on the other hand, only manages 25 highway mpg.
This isn’t the first time the Odyssey has come out ahead of the Town & Country. See how the 2014 models of both minivans compare.
